Bale responds to Reynolds and McElhenney after Wrexham transfer plea

Ryan Reynolds shares moment pitch is invaded after Wrexham promotion

Gareth Bale has responded to Rob McElhenney’s advance over a potential blockbuster transfer to League Two-bound Wrexham. And Ryan Reynolds has weighed in on the conversation as the Hollywood owners prepare to make waves in the English Football League.

Wrexham secured the National League title with a 3-1 win against Boreham Wood at the Racecourse Ground on Saturday.

Fellow film star Paul Rudd joined Reynolds and McElhenney as they celebrated promotion to League Two, the latest in a star-studded list of names to visit north Wales this season.

The popular duo have funded Wrexham’s historic return to the Football League for the first time since 2008 in just their second full campaign as owners.

Reynolds and McElhenney have used their financial might to attract top lower-league stars to Wrexham, helping the club achieve a record 110-point tally with one game left.

But their sights have been set on even bigger fish as they prepare for the fourth tier of English football in 2023/24.

On Tuesday, McElhenney took to Twitter to post a video Bale had sent to congratulate him on his achievements with Wrexham.

The former Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid winger said: “Hi, Rob. Just want to congratulate you on your promotion and everything you’re doing at Wrexham.”

McElhenney captioned the video with a cheeky approach: “Hey, @GarethBale11, let’s play golf, where I totally won’t spend four hours trying to convince you to un-retire for one last magical season.”

And later in the day, Bale suggested he may be open to hearing what the American owner has to say, writing: “Depends what course…”

On Wednesday morning, Reynolds joined in on the pitch with an interesting proposition if Bale considered a headline-steeling switch to Wrexham.

“I will shave a professional-grade golf course into Rob’s back if you’ll give Wrexham a season,” Reynolds tweeted.

Bale retired in January, aged 33, after Wales’ disappointing 2022 World Cup campaign in Qatar.

He is Wales men’s all-time leading goalscorer and a five-time Champions League winner but walked away from football midway through his Los Angeles FC contract, which was set to expire this summer.

It would be one of the most incredible transfers in history if he decided to step into League Two for a season as Wrexham eye back-to-back promotions.
